Forum: bookmobile Subject: The US Army Presidio Bookmobile (R.I.P.)

As part of the hunt for a new vehicular host for the Internet Bookmobile, an interesting candidate was located, but sadly Nature's hold on it was too great to be overcome without spending unreasonable amounts of cash.

The vehicle that we looked at is a 1958 Ford van converted into a Bookmobile for use by the US Army on the Presidio Army Base, presumably in the late 50's and on into the 60's.

You are invited to view the pictures from this interesting corner of San Francisco bookmobile lore:

If you have suggestions for a suitable vehicle to be used for the Internet Bookmobile-II project, please contact
